In retrospect, the '89 should've been shorter; you can sense it running out of gas toward the end. But the '97 is as good as I'd hoped, partly because I had so many things that I imported at 192kbps instead of the 128kbps that much of '89 was (thanks to Mike Daddino, whose multi-CD sets of hip-hop and electronica were ransacked for my own project; similarly, I ended up using a few of his MP3s on the '80 one as well). Anyway, if you're interested in acquiring or trading for these, drop me a line.
